About Mares Flexa 5-4-3mm Men's One Piece Wetsuit, Black/Gray

The Flexa family is the highest expression of Trilastic. Flexa uses different thickness for different areas of the body, 100% ultra-stretch high quality neoprene, with unparalleled finish and attention to detail. Back zip with smooth neoprene flap for more comfort and isolation. New rubber tag custom closure and back zip puller. Back Protection System (BPS): an additional layer of neoprene stitched in the back provides additional comfort and thermal protection.

Trilastic concept was born out of intelligence and superior stylistic technology. The concept offers versatility in a wide range of environments and transcends various water temperatures with minimal layering. Too much material in the wrong places can result in pointless bulk and unnecessary buoyancy. The idea is to minimize the thickness in the regions not requiring critical heat retention and making the suit easier to duff and don. Thinner more flexible neoprene, gives you more comfort. Overwhelmingly accepted, the materials for this concept start with a high tech plush material cushioning the skin and generating warmth, superior sealing materials and construction lock in the water that your body warms. A super elastic materials properly placed provide a greater range of movement. This combination of materials, their arrangement in specific areas creates a line of intelligent wet suits.

The BPS takes inspiration from the Mares BCD line. By adding a wide additional neoprene layer in the lumbar region, the diver benefits in multiple ways. The added neoprene adds warmth to a critical area of the body. It also fills the empty space in the back that sometimes allows water to seep and move causing the diver to get cold faster. The added neoprene also adds padding and protection to the back when wearing a heavy cylinder system on the beach or boat deck.

Custom neck closure system allows for an easy customization of the neck fitting. Velcro neck folds in on itself when needed to eliminate snagging of the plush lining or neoprene. Flexa has a back zipper with skin-on-skin zipper seal for superior water seal. Supratex Knee Pads, protection made of anti-scratch polyurethane not only looks sharp, but is engineered for high strength and protection without compromising flexibility. The linear design moves in line with your body while still guarding this high wear area.

The internal thermo plush lining is soft, smooth, durable and allows increased freedom of movement, guaranteeing extreme mobility. Its refined finish keeps you warmer yet, prevents the suit from retaining water promoting fast drying between and after diving. The Flexa 5, 4, 3 mm neoprene Trilastic suit comes in 6 sizes and has a 24 month limited warranty.

Comments about Mares Flexa 5-4-3mm Men's One Piece Wetsuit, Black/Gray:

For those of you who are considering a Mares wetsuit, stick to a brand that uses a zipper with a metal pull tab (slider). My son purchased a Mares trilastic 5-4-3 in '09, used it on a single dive trip, and then pull tab broke apart when he pulled it out of storage for our second dive trip.

I called Mares and they said it was out of warranty, and they don't repair their own products. He could have at least provided me with a list of business who can repair the zipper, but no.

So, for the lack of durability, I give Mares 1 flag.

In contrast, I have a 20 year old Body Glove shorty (with a metal pull tab) and it has held up great.

Comments about Mares Flexa 5-4-3mm Men's One Piece Wetsuit, Black/Gray:

If only it were front zip!!!

Typically having between 12% and 13% body fat, I get cold very easily. 78°F definitely warrants a suit like this for me and it's nice and toasty till about 72°F, then I notice the joints start to get a little chilly when I move around.

The wrist and ankle seals are super! I don't know about the neck seal though since I wear a hood. I suppose it's working. There's this zipper keeper that keeps the zipper from coming down, which I thought was a pretty nifty idea.
